Simultaneity (Collapse of A-Series Time).
One of the reasons I refer to these pieces as “stills” is because I view them as a pause in action, a moment snapped from within a whirl of constant…

Punching out some new digital manipulations, working on more micro zooms and horizons and doing a ton of reading.
I’m in the process of working on a variety of outputs as well, testing different matte and photo papers for some of the larger scale works. I’ve also decided to do a smaller sequencing of 8″ x 10″ pieces, similar to the line of prints I had at the last residency.…
Please note: The footnotes do not work as dynamic links, but are very important. You’ll find the numbered footnotes at the bottom of this post.
Alternately, you can download a copy of the paper and read it or print it more naturally.

I always work on little ink drawings I refer to as “artifacts.” They are abstractions of stone, tablets, architecture and archaeological sites, each penned on 3″ x 3″ paper. I have hundreds of them, all waiting for a final presentation form. They also serve another purpose: they get scanned and incorporated into my digital work, or exposed on silk screens and photopolymer plates.
Here are a few I recently completed:
These little guys are zoom-ins, micro moments extracted from the Cascade’s fluctuating landscape. Leslie (and several others during the residency) suggested I experiment with microscopic surface investigation. What happens when I isolate moments, angles, individual passages? Do these patterns represent what’s happening on a larger scale in the full-sized stills, or do they…
